Paul Walker & Bruce Willis to be father and son in A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD?

Things are moving along with the 5th Die Hard film. Last week the title was announced, A Good Day to Die Hard. This week the recruitment of John McClane’s (Bruce Willis) son is underway.

It is being rumoured that Paul Walker (best known for his involvement in The Fast and The Furious franchise) is one of the actors meeting with Bruce Willis this week to try out for the role.

According to Total Film, other contenders include Ben Foster (3:10 to Yuma, Six Feet Under), Paul Dano (Little Miss Sunshine, Let There Be Blood), Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) and Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes).

This is a mixed bunch of actors – all very good in their own right, however Paul Walker is the one that jumps off the page for me. He has the looks, has a lot of action experience, and at 39, will feel more like McClane’s son rather than his grandson (no disrespect meant to Willis).

A Good Day to Die Hard is being directing by Irish man John Moore and will start shooting in Russia in January. According to, in this 5th installment of the Die Hard franchise, “John McClane and his son take on local forces in Russia”. It is set for a 2013 release.

Here’s the trailer for the original Die Hard which was released in 1988!

That’s Entertainment!

About The Bellissimo Files

Hi, I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents! As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen! This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t. Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings. Away from The Bellissimo Files, you can find me on Spin 1038 on Saturdays, between 1pm and 3pm,presenting Plan B. There’s celebrity interviews, entertainment news, the low down on the must see movies and music releases of the week, the ultimate guide to what’s on where in the city, as well as masterclasses with experts on standby to answer listeners’ questions. I also appear on TV3’s “Elaine” panel, talk movies on “Ireland AM” and you can sometimes hear me filling in on Moncrieff’s “Movies and Booze “(Newstalk) The Bellissimo Files is constantly evolving. Files (topics) will be added or deleted as time goes on. Feel free to read, watch, comment, share, and make suggestions for what you would like to see on the site. Sarina
